THIS CROOKED WORLD
Get away with what you can.
This Crooked World is a feature-length chase thriller threaded by a razor-wire plot and soaked in dark humor. It pulls its DNA from Fargo, Snatch, and Thelma & Louise.
Filming is slated to begin in early 2022.
When masked thief Gina breaks into an apartment, the last thing she expects to find is a woman tied to the radiator. But Nancy, the kidnap victim, needs Gina's help to get away. Conflicted, Gina gives into Nancy’s pleas, and soon the two are escaping the building.
Once on the street, they’re spotted by Nancy’s kidnapper, Fielder, sparking a chaotic pursuit that crosses borders, loyalties, and familial ties.
